The Approaches to Learning Project (ALP), is an undergraduate research participation scheme at The University of Roehampton. The aim of the ALP is for doctoral students to plan and deliver a series of sessions for first year undergraduate students that combine research participation with relevant lectures and workshops. ALP delivery is integrated at programme level, to meet a range of learning objectives. While traditional course credit schemes provide some pedagogic value to participants, we believe that the ALP provides further and distinct benefits to the undergraduate students involved, the doctoral students coordinating it, and the wider department. We will share examples of our practice including sample ALP session content, ethical considerations and the different ways students have benefited from engaging with the scheme.
